The Role of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles in Electrifying Personal Transport - Analysis of empirical data from North America
Licentiate thesis, 2020
Our results indicate that PHEVs with a range of at least 35 US miles (56 km) have an important role to play, especially in the electrification of vehicle miles travelled within the household context where they can achieve as much electrification as some battery electric vehicles; regular overnight charging can have a noteworthy reduction on tail pipe emissions of PHEVs and substantially increase share of electrification of miles; and policy for PHEVs should prioritize easy access to overnight charging above public and workplace infrastructure to achieve high shares of electrification.
